Brett thinks:

I'm thinking about adding one additional item called "Popular Topics" with submenus for things like "private vs company training", "choosing a company", "items to bring on the road", "leasing or owning a truck", etc.

Now that you've taken off that top row of links, this is a good idea. Maybe call it "Trucker FAQs" or "Trucking Truth FAQs"?

So many people come here, and their first post is "What's the best company for _______". I know every one of these gets an individual Trucking Truth answer, but to help the questioner out, they might be ale to find the answer themselves that much faster.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Looks great on my phone. It is easier to log on using my phone than it is on my laptop though. I have to go to the three lined drop down bar on the left and select login on my laptop.

Great Job, Brett! Colin K.

Ok everyone, I've got the new menu and website header complete and I'd like you guys to test this out for me, let me know what you think:

New Menu Demo

Does that menu work well on your device?

Do you have any suggestions for making it better?

I plan on putting that across the entire website starting tomorrow morning so I'd appreciate any feedback I can get.

Thanks!

One thing I love about it so far is the fact that I only have to wait for a one time reloading. I click where I want to go and I only have to wait for it to load once.

I'm not sure why that is. It doesn't distinguish between devices at all. It might just be an issue with the browser caching some old information. If it doesn't clear up on its own you will probably have to clear your browser's cache and that will clear it up.

Yeah, now it's easy to go to pretty much any page on the website in one shot. I'm thrilled about that. When I leave the house I'm always checking on the forum and some administrative pages I have on my phone. I used to keep different tabs open to speed up the process but now I just use one tab and I can jump from page to page quickly. I should have put in this menu a long time ago!

I also just realized I forgot to put a link to my own book!

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the look and layout of this website when I first came here.

Being a member of several forums all over the world, I found that this site was well laid out with a cool relaxing tone. Even the mobile version is impressive with clear easy to read fonts and colors.

So kudos to the developers and their efforts.

Same here. Other forums look outdated and have WAY too many useless features. Everything on here is needed, and there isn't really anything else needed IMO. One of the things I liked when I joined over a year ago, and why I still like it today. That and our community of awesome truckers!
